Fac 251, the newly reopened Hacienda, are putting a lot of effort into, and succeeding (IMHO), coming out with some lovely GRAPHIC design on their flyers recently. A lot of it is inspired by the original design work of Peter Saville who was responsible for the amazing and iconic design work that went along with the first ‘Hac’.
As a side note i recently read a brilliant book by Peter Hook, “The Hacienda- How not to run a club” it’s very funny and well written with lots of stories and tales of what went on behind the scenes during the iconic club’s short life.
I like PJ Harvey but never been a huge fan, however I love this new single “Written On The Forehead” from the album “Let England Shake”
Baby Can’t stop – love , love love it!
These guys are really cool kinda floaty, trip hoppy, Massive Attack, Portishead vibe and I am pleased to say the lead singer is my friend Caz Sterling, have a listen and watch out for London dates coming soon.
